I was having a conversation the other day at work about spring trends and somebody gave me one of the most awesome compliments I could have received: They said they admired how I follow trends but never wear them how everyone else is, but instead make them my own. My heart stopped. That really is what blogging is all about, am I right!? Yes, it's common for bloggers to fall in love with the same things (hence the birth of the anti blog SFBW) but the beauty and the fun is to take that trend and hone in on how it can be yours and yours alone.
The above pictures are a compilation of black and white inspired looks that I adore and can't wait to translate into my own wardrobe this spring/summer. What I adore is that even though these are two basic colors they can take on such new life based on how they are styled:
1- The first grouping resonates to me based on its grunge appeal
2- I adore the understated garments in the 2nd assortment because of their great draping & silhouettes
3- The concert-chic version of the trend (complete with an arm full of bangles)
4- Sleek looks that are purposely understated with the addition of the ripped denim.
How will you be rocking your B&W basics this summer?
